"If you're looking for 1 axe that does everything very well, this is it."
All Ice axes are a blend of compromises. This one blends the strongest possible head/pick (1 piece forged chromoly) with very light weight, without being TOO light, like the Camp Corsa. I've used the straight-shaft version of this axe for years and it's still my #1 overall most-recommended ice axe for general mountaineering. The pick climbs water ice better than most while still being OK for self arrest. Finally, the unique Grivel head design is the most comfortable to use in cane position, period.
